Singapore is fortunate to have over 2000 registered charities serving many needy beneficiaries. Each are run by teams of passionate and like-minded staff and volunteers with support from government and generous public donors. But why are there still gaps in meeting beneficiary needs despite the best efforts of each stakeholder of this growing non-profit ecosystem? How can we better leverage and focus limited precious resources post-COVID without duplication of efforts leading to overserved and underserved beneficiary groups? Looking through different lenses of frogs and bicycles, this talk introduces systems thinking for social change using Israeli-based Theory of Constraints.
